WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: JANUARY 2013, VOL. 86: BOOTLEG/MASHUP SPECIAL

10 Jan

It’s a new year, so it we take a second to step back and take a look at trends occurring in EDM! We take a special look at Bootlegs and Mashups this week. Bootlegs and Mashups are becoming more common frequency-wise and they are now a staple of most DJ sets. EDM Charts takes a look at the top #5 Bootlegs and Mashups over the past 6 months. We also welcome in special guest DJ Viper Huxley for this week’s guest mix.

1. HARD ROCK SOFA VS DIRTY SOUTH VS JULIAN JORDAN & SANDER VAN DOORN “HERE GOES THE KANGAROO WALKING ALONE” [MICHAEL SCOTT BOOTLEG]edmcharts_julianjordan

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK, USA

Description: In EDM Charts opinion this is the most epic and gnarly mashup/bootleg of the past six months. It Takes “Here We Go”, “Walking Alone” and “Kangaroo” and jam packs it all into one hell of a package. Hard Rock Sofa and Julian Jordan & Sander van Doorn take care of the heavy pounding beats. “Walking Alone” ads some nice vocals and a bit more of a progressive house edge. Michael Scott does a brilliant job finding the right fit for this jigsaw puzzle of a mix.

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Description: It’s hard to think of a higher anticipated track of 2012 from other than the biggest EDM group on the planet in Swedish House Mafia. This track not only garnered the attention of EDM fans, but it also caught the eyes of Absolut Vodka, as it became part of their huge marketing campaign. This song is pure genius and showcases the groups diverseness.
